Cook's Hideout: 3 Day Detox Diet -- Detox Soup with Carrot & Green Beans

3 Day Detox Diet -- Detox Soup with Carrot & Green Beans

Blogging Marathon# 64: Week 1/ Day 3
Theme: Detox Diet
Dish: Detox Soup with Carrot & Green Beans
What I really liked about this 3-day detox diet is that we never felt we were dieting or eating less in the 3 days. The portions of all the meals are quite substantial and we are also allowed 2 snacks each day -- either 1oz. of nuts and/ or 2 pieces of fruit. Today I have the recipe for the soup that is served for dinner during the cleanse.
Detox Soup with Carrot & Green Beans
It is a simple soup with carrot and green beans. Make the full batch on the first day and you are good to go for the next 2 days. Hot soup is poured over fresh spinach and chopped dill and then steeped for 5 minutes for the greens to wilt.

Detox Soup with Carrot & Green Beans
This soup is a soothing option to make anytime of the year. Turmeric, a popular spice used in Indian cooking, is an especially rich source of curcumin, an antioxidant that fights inflammation.

  11. Naturally, whenever someone wants to try a new diet, they want to know beforehand if it works or not. Otherwise, it may just turn out to be a waste of their time. The good thing about this diet is that it only lasts three days, so even if it doesn’t work as expected, you don’t have a lot to lose. See more http://3daysmilitarydiet.com/results-reviews/does-the-military-diet-work.html
